So, I did it. I talked to my husband about my stay at home idea and he was totally on board. Honestly, I was totally shocked. I didn't think he was ready for me to be at home yet, I definitely thought he was going to want to have me a wait a few more years. I couldn't have been more wrong!
We were totally on the same page w/ so many things, sometimes apparently all you need to do is talk! HA! Who would've thought.
Anywho, the one thing we have to wait on before we can make any final decisions or starting making any definite plans is our tax return. The amount we get back is going to make it or break it. We also have to put his truck up for sale. So... here my friends is the plan.
Get tax return
Use both of those to pay off both credit cards and my car
Take remainder (if any) and put it into savings
Try living 3 months on his salary plus a small portion of mine, and see if it's feasible
If it all works out, I'll get to stay home!!!! It would be my dream come true, you have no idea. While I don't mind working, and I do love my current job, I know I'm meant to stay at home. I'm meant to be a mom and a wife all the time.
Also, I've started my Mary Kay business back up! Very exciting stuff. I did it for a while last year and did pretty good with it, but personal and work related issues got in the way, and I just did have enough time or effort to continue to make it work. Which sucked, because it's a lot of fun, I really enjoyed doing it. If I'm able to get a consistent income from it, it will be able to be my part time job while I stay at home!! That would be amazing. If not though, I will have to get a part time job just a few days a week.
I'm so excited you guys, you have no idea. I never thought it would even be possible for this day to come anytime soon. Especially not this soon. Within 6 months I could be waking up with my baby everyday! I couldn't ask for more. Wish me luck!
